I ditched Vodafone a year ago as they had NO 3G where I worked (which is about 10 miles from Vodafone HQ!) - just now on their coverage map there is STILL no 3G or 4G in that area - so not much...

With an Apple warranty you can get the phone investigated and/or replaced at any Apple Store....which might be faster than going via O2.

Just transfer over the SIM card - it is the same size. If you don't have 4G the iPhone 6 will do 3G just fine.

I got an IMEI status check on a brand new iPhone 6 from GiffGaff. This showed that that handset was, indeed, O2 stock - and confirmed that it is fully unlocked.

It is also as it should be in the...
